I mean, you either own it or you don’t. You are being really defensive for someone who’s owning it…Maybe take a step back?

ksn1219:  I feel your pain lady! I know the criticism hurts. The only thing is this… showing your dress does kind of invite opinions, not just good ones. Personally, I’m not a fan of how you look in it either but I was glad you were happy with the pic. At the end of the day other bees may hate how I look in my dress as well (which is why I will never post myself in it because I don’t want opinions).

I don’t think anyone was necessarily rude though. I think it just hurts because its something you love dearly. e*hugs* and wear your dress however you see fit. If you are open to feedback though I would suggest listening to some  of these ladies.

ksn1219:  I think you should just close the thread. You love it, you’re wearing it, so there is really no reason for anyone to do anything other than congratulate you on finding it. I think it is perfect for a beach wedding, and will look perfect in pics.

Please do post pics of the finished, altered dress. And please, please don’t let this stop you from posting a recap! Your wedding in Bora Bora sounds amazing! I am really looking forward to your pics!

ETA: $900 for a veil is an insult. I second a hair piece. Maybe something with pearls?

Wow, OP! Your new dress is incredibly unique! My hand to God I’ve never seen anything like it in all my time on the ‘bee. Different in so very many ways. What memorable intricacy. You will be utterly unforgettable to your guests.

Your happiness is what the dress search is about at the end of the day! =)

The more I look at your dress, the more I love it.  I do however think the veil you are wearing is hiding the fabulous shape of your skirt and figure by swallowing you up. Congrats on finding a dress that you love.

ksn1219:  I’m sorry, what did I say that was negative?  Other than you were possibly being a bit sensitive, which by the way, you proved in your uncalled for response.  If you really are that incapable of processing the anonymous opinions of complete strangers on the internet, close the thread.  Otherwise, it kind of looks like you’re revelling in the drama.

Why are you keeping this thread open?

Its time to step away.. If you love the dress so much, why even invite the masses to make comments on it? Why become defensive when people share opinions contrary to your own? Its your dress, your wedding.. This is ridiculous.

No one said anything “bitchy”. All anyone said was it wasn’t flattering.  

Now I’ll be fully honest (and we know you dont want honesty and instead want brown nosing accompanied by unicorn spittle) even the models in it can’t pull it off. It’s not just your shape (and I had the same shape as you, short with squarish hips and generous breasts) it only looks decent on a side ways view. The top portion looks like a vest with the way the seams are (already I questioned the zipper). The neck is so high only a giraffe could pull it off (and being short it makes it worse) It is already tight and you look stuffed in it, I don’t see how taking it in would benefit anything at all. If the models can’t even make that dress look good I don’t see how any form fitting shape wear is going to make it actually look good.  I am assuming you are going to wear some sort of slip under it, as the skirt fabric is so sheer you can see your legs in it, and it looks like your legs are cut off.  The two flowers sitting above the breast..When you are wearing a good undergarment that places your breast higher, those flowers are going to look like nipples,  then there are the two genital flowers to match. 

I love the horse hair, it’s pretty and alot of the detail is pretty as well. The colour is beautiful. It’s just not a pretty dress to me. All that I mentioned above would bother me if I wore it.  But the thing is I’m not wearing it. For all we know what we hate about the dress ( and yes I hate the dress) you love about it.  Who cares. We are all strangers. You love it, so be it. 

But I don’t see a problem with people comparing you in both your dresses, especially as you posted both, and being honest in telling you your original was much more flattering.  They are giving honest opinions they would want. Feedback on thier purchase. Instead everyone’s a basic bitch for not oohing and ahhing over a dress you already knew isn’t flattering.   No one was the least bit rude to you.

smoocherific:  We have to be honest though.. most of us on here DO NOT want honesty.. we want people to flock to the post and say everything we have picked is gorgeous and out of this world. This is why I don’t comment on most dress and ring posts. I see some dresses and think God that’s teribble but there are always a bunch of bee’s thelling the OP how gorgeous she looks. Honesty doesn’t always prevail here and I feel like unsolicited opions are annoying but at the same time when you put something out there like a dress are you not asking for opinions?

ksn1219: I don’t normally comment on these threads. And I don’t want to add to any of the drama. I stumbled on this past post of yours while browsing through the boards this morning. But if you end up second guessing this dress, the second dress you posted here looks gorgeous on you. The shape, cut and colour are very flattering on you.

rodri:  You know, honesty doesn’t always equate to ‘hate’.  Sometimes the truth just isn’t what we want to hear.
